This document describes a method to allow an Internet registry operate both a nicname/whois service side-by-side with a CRISP service in a coherent and well understood manner. This document does not attempt to alter the nicname/whois protocol to meet this goal, nor does it attempt to make CRISP backwards-compatible with current nicname/whois deployments.
